Board rescinds work reduction mandate
BACKUS - Cass County Board voted Tuesday to rescind for 2011 the mandate set in 2010 to require county employees to reduce their work hours by 64 during the year.
The mandate was equivalent to cutting annual pay by 3 percent from union contracts which otherwise would have given a 3 percent raise in 2010. The effect was to keep annual wages paid at 2009 levels in 2010.
